Re: ED Door Trims

Get a set of vice grips. Wrap some black tape around the teeth, lock them over the knob on the lock, pull up until she pops off. The rest is just screws.

Make sure you line the rod up with the hole when you put them back on.

Re: ED Door Trims

You will need to use a bit of force to pull it up as well. And be sure to remove the mirror section.

Re: ED Door Trims

yeah the seal for the glass of the window is often tight and for this it will seem like there is still something attached so as said u need a bit of force to get this out

Is it me, or are your just post whoring?

Anyways, i think u might also need some set of special screwdrivers for the nuts in the door handle. If not, most of it is easy as said, to get the door handle section, pull it forward and then twist it so the front section rises towards the back of the door, it should unclip from the attached wire. do the reverse to reattach.

Re: ED Door Trims

Could be a good idea to wind the window down when you are pulling the lock off. Mine was really hard to get off and when it finally came I ended up whacking the window the 1st time, luckily I didnt break or scratch it though.

Re: ED Door Trims

Naw you don't need torx bits for the door handles, just use a flathead screwdriver.

just get the set, there cheap. you actually get a variety of security bits then you can take other things out easily insted of breaking them like those screws which hold the factory radios in. actually i used vice grips for those but anyway.
